Salford Quays, England
Salford Quays is an area of Salford, in Greater Manchester, England, near the end of the Manchester Ship Canal. Previously the site of Salford Docks, it became one of the first and largest urban regeneration projects in the United Kingdom following the closure of the dockyards in 1982.

The Quays covers the three areas of Salford Quays, Trafford Wharf, and Old Trafford around the Manchester Ship Canal. These former docks have been completely redeveloped and will soon be home to a large portion of the BBC, creating one of the biggest media cities around.
